Many Issues Resolved
By MacDoodles on


2003 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)


It was only a few days after purchase
that a heat issue surfaced, then smoke
started rising from the engine. The
radiator and thermostat was replaced,
all while I drove around in a
Discovery. I also noted some
problems with engine & transmission
performance on the quality survey I
received. Many issues I noted were on
a list of recalls. All of the lacking
components were addressed and
ride/drive quality improved
significantly. I am sure these have
been fixed on many before delivery,
being an "early adopter" has its draw
backs. Over all, since my initial
problems, I am satisfied with the

Best Features

The interior on mine is well appointed and very comfortable. The quality of the leather and other surfaces is above par. The value to dollar ratio is reminiscent of Volkswagon cars. Filled with features often found on cars costing quite a bit more.

Worst Features

I would have opted up to the HSE if I thought the added advantage of the navigation system was worth it. I would love to see a better nav system on future models (screen and better input).
